Probably not. But if your making probably the best diesel engine in the world for performance and economy then you can get away with charging a bit more.
But that's BMW all over, does it really cost 1600 for an auto 'box? Around 1500 for sat nav? 500 for bluetooth? (in the E90) etc, etc.....

With regards to diff between 328i and 330d calcs, the guy above only got 25 mpg out of a 328i which sounds a bit disappointing. I get late 30's - 40 mpg out of my current E90 330d so I'd expect the F30 330d to be even better than that based on the manufacturers figures.
